illegal for undocumented workers to look for a job. >> i think it's important to remind everybody today absolutely the federal government got relief from the court to not to do their job. and that means that now they've got this temporary injunction, they need to step up, the feds do, and do the job that they have the responsibility to do for the people of america and for the people of arizona. >> reporter: maricopa county shef joe arpio says it will be business as usual for his department despite the ruling. >> if we prove he's here illegally, we can't book him into the jail, so we'll turn him over to i.c.e. >> reporter: it is a major victory for opponents to the law. >> the overall, we are all happy! and proud!

administration, inspite of its rhetoric and stance, has increased enforcement. we have 1100 people day who are arrested and deported. most of these people have families. that means between 1,000 and 2,000 u.s. citizen children see a father or a mother taken away, arrested by armed men every single day. >> reporter: reverend coleman and the other organizers have a name of those children of deported illegals. they're calling obama orphans. that's why they're targeting the white house. >> i think obama has to do something for all the people could be happy. >> reporter: they were hoping to bend the president's ear, tough to do when he's campaigning in new york and new jersey. . coming up in a few minutes, how will the law and immigration issues affect our area? a representative of maryland and the chairman of the board in prince william county will be live in our studios with

is a world record for weight. you know, we're always saying, there could be hail the size of soft balls. how about this one, 8 inches in diameter. 18 and a half inches around and it was found in vivian, south dakota, by a name by the name of less scott. look what it did to the roofs. he said it sounded like someone was throwing bricks at his house. there was a tornado that touched down as well. why did he go out and get this one? he said it was very unusual. he saw it fall and it looked like it had fingers on it so he went out to get it and he literally contemplated making a daquiri. he called the weather service and they came out and measured it. this is still the biggest hail stone measured in the united states. they took it to a post office where they have a certified weigh scale and weighed it. it's going to be on the record books for a listening time.
a close up picture of all the fingers he saw on t the storm hit on friday by the weather service certified it yesterday. congratulations les scott. we have one more steamy day in our forecast. showers and storms are going to be around tomorrow and we have to tell you that these storms could have potentially damaging winds. it could happen because we'll be in the low to mid-90s after the front goes by temperatures will drop into the mid-80s. a one-day special and i want you to be cautious if you're outside tomorrow afternoon, any time after noon because these storms could be moving fast and as the skies darken that's the time to get out of the way as fast as you can. it could be a few more storms around on sunday as well. satellite radar isolated storm tonight. this one we were watching earlier in the broadcast that came out near leesburg and over to the darnstown area, that has
dissipated. but we'll be watching to the north and west. here is a line of storms out ahead of the system. a new one will fire up with the front and that could happen as early as the noon hour, but more likely between 3 and 5 in the metropolitan area tomorrow. don't let this be the last time you check on a weather forecast when we have a line of storms coming. myfoxdc.com always has radar and we keep our information fresh on there. 92 degrees and the humidity is back in a big wachl the dewpoint is 73 so it feels like it's in the low 90s even at this hour. we're headed for 94 but feeling like 95 to 100 tomorrow because of the high humidity. 87 for friday, 86 for saturday, 85 on sunday. i'm not eliminating a chance for a shower on saturday but a better chance on sunday. temperature still 86 degrees
right now. when we factor in the humidity we get our heat index. it steel feels like 102 in fredricksburg. 93 for dc. futurecast, let's time out the storms for tomorrow. the few showers we had out here tonight moving away. we're beginning to see a few showers, maybe some stronger storms down here along route 66. everything will move from southeast to northwest. at 3:00, that might be kind of the peak time for our area. the big action will be in the middle part of the afternoon and again potentially some strong to damaging winds, certainly some heavy rain as well. five-day forecast, 94, but that's the last 90 i have on this map. even into early next week we think temperatures will stay in the 80s. watching for possibility of thunderstorms again on sunday. >> thank you, sue. recapping one of our big
stories, a serious blow to arizona immigration law. a federal judge blocked key parts of the law. stripped from the legislation, requiring officers to check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws. requiring immigrants to carry papers at all times proving they are in the country legally, and the section that made it illegal for undocumented workers to look for employment. we asked you to weigh in on the debate on our website. tonight the results are in. 13% said yes, a judge should have restricted arizona's immigration law. overwhelming 87% of voters disagree with the judge's decision to block the parts of the new law. joining me now to sort through this, enid gonzalez and cory stuart. cory, i want to start with you. this was a preliminary injunction, this thing is far from over. could go to the supreme court. but arizona's law was modelled after your law in prince william county. do you see this having ramifications on you, now, this judge's ruling?
>> actually, i don't think so. and the arizona judge, the federal judge there, made an error. prince william had its law challenged in early 2008. the federal district court judge here in alexandria found that the law was legal and we haven't had the law challenged since then. so i think at the end of the day this judge has had her judgements on pre-emption overturned in the past by the 9th circuit court. not a conservative court. and i think this one will be overturned as well. >> to be clear, your law doesn't require that immigrants carry paper on make it illegal for undocumented workers to look for work; is that right. >> that's right, it does not. it requires police officers to check immigration status incident to an arrest. but there are some things that we can learn from this decision to make sure we avoid the same
thing in the commonwealth. >> i want to bring inid gonzalez into this conversation. this issue is clear. 18 states are looking at doing something similar to what arizona has done and what prince william county has done. people are feeling in these communities that are looking at this, they're feeling failed by the federal system here. what are these states supposed to do? >> well, the states don't have the capacity to deal with this issue for the reasons presented by the government in this lawsuit in which the judge ruled in favor of because there is such a thing as the supremacy clause and there are reasons why our federal government, which has all of our nation in mind as opposed to the interests of one specific state, and not only that but the things like foreign policy. >> the federal government is failing here, inid, and everybody agrees. >> i totally agree with that. >> that the system is broken.
what are these states supposed to do when the federal government fails them? >> i think the people in these states have to get on their legislators, their con -- members of congress. >> isn't that what arizona did? they got the legislators and the legislators are doing what they can. >> not their state legislators, the federal legislators have to resolve this problem because it it it is a federal issue. -- because it is a federal issue. and that is why the judge ruled in the manner he ruled. it is very unfortunate that congress has not addressed this issue. it's not addressed its responsibility with regard to this issue and i feel for the people that are in support of this law just like they're in a huge percentage of the people who have said they support this legislation also support legalization for undocumented workers. the people want --
>> citizenship is the ultimate goal here, right? >> the ultimate goal is to have a sane immigration system. we have a dysfunctional immigration system that is hurting every aspect of our country. the goal is to have a sane immigration system so that in the future we don't have people risking their lives to come here and live under the radar in subhuman conditions. >> and cory, i want to bring you in here. you get the last word. do you think this is the final tipping point here. the federal government is being forced by a federal judge to look at the issue and perhaps will finally start not turning a blind eye, the obama administration? >> i think there has been a turning point here. people are fed up with the federal government, they've lost faith with the federal government. we're trying to get it in virginia, there are 700 local and state law enforcement
officials. the feds need the states and localities to enforce federal law including federal immigration law. >> amy gonzalez, cory stuart, i don't think anybody would argue that illegal immigrants in our communities who have made contributions in our communities this. is a taxing problem on our system, on our schools, on our hospitals, on our legal system. so this is obviously at the foot of the obama administration now, sitting there on the front door step. we'll have to see how it plays out. thanks for coming in and talking to us. >> thank you. >> thank you. ecic
to idol or if idol reached out to her. she's one of the dozens of celebs being considered. so you think you can dance is coming up to the finale. we caught up with this season's finalists. >> reporter: competing in so you think you can dance takes more than raw talent. especially when it comes down to the wire. >> you just tore it up out there. >> reporter: skill and confidence will get you this far, but to win it all, the dancers must incorporate cutting edge choreography and show stopping style. . >> the choreography is brilliant. the thinks they come up with is like, really? >> there's a synergy between the choreographies and competitors.
